HOLTSVILLE, N.Y. -- Two months after a power outage forced the race to be postponed, Justin Bonsignore is hoping to capture the $10,000 check this Wednesday, August 25 at Seekonk Speedway. Bonsignore will return to Tri Track Open Modified Series competition for the fifth time this season in the 100-lap Speed51.TV Modified Madness. He will drive the No. 00 entry prepared by Jimmy Paige and Steve Lemay in the special event.
In June, Bonsignore won his qualifying heat at Seekonk, earning him $300 in the Pepsi Challenge. However, a combination of a bad weather forecast and a power outage in the area postponed the race nearly two months. Since then, Bonsignore has a seventh-place finish at Star Speedway and a third-place finish at Monadnock Speedway in Tri Track action. He’s hoping to improve on those efforts and capture the big money on Wednesday night.
“Starting ninth and looking forward to seeing what we can go out there and do in the battle for the $10,000,” Bonsignore said. “Thank you to the team for their hard work to get the car ready.”
The schedule for a full night of racing includes practice from 5:30-6:10 p.m., followed by the drop of the green flag for the 100-lap feature around 7:30 p.m. The NEMA Lites and 350 SMAC Supermodifieds will also be in action.
All tickets and pit passes that were purchased for the original Wednesday, June 30, date, will be honored on Wednesday if the ticket holder still has them in their possession. Additional tickets will also be available at the track for purchase for those who couldn’t make it the first time. The race will also be live on Speed51.TV for those who can’t make it to the track.
